by the way , David... do those older xxx.xxx codes have any meaning ?
WOW,,your absolutely a REAL tag Team David,,Im surprise on your research and Tag experience,,This is a great info for rookie like me..I did this one a while back, so I'll have to go the quick route.
One the post year 1992 code format... AA#### A third alpha was introduced somewhere around 2002 for the expanded line and new iterations of many of the series.
1st Character = W= Analog or C= Chornograph
2nd Character = Series... H= 6000 A= Vinatge F1 series, D= Vintage 1500, E = Vintage 2000, , F= 4000, G= S/el Series, I=S/el Leather, K= 2k Classic, L= Kirium , M=2000 Sport Series, N= 2k Exclusive, =AH current F1 etc.... I know there a bunch of Classic Series that follow (Monaco, Carrera, Monza, etc) but those aren't in my recall anymore.
3rd Character (1st digit) = Movement 1= Qtz 2 = Automatic 5 = Chronometer (there is a 7, but I think that's the new wheel chronos..)
4th Charcter (2nd digit) = Size 0= Magnum/Grande, 1 = Gents, 2=Midsize 3= Ladies, 4= Ladies Mini
5th Character (3rd digit) = Case base material 1= Stainless Steel, 2= Steel and Gold Plate, 4 = Solid 18k, 5= Steel and Solid 18k
6th Character (4th digit) = Dial color No real standard across the models anymore.
NOTE: I did this all quickly from recall and I did review it once, so while I believe it is pretty accurate, it may not be complete.
The bracelets and straps had codes, but I was never really interested in those much.
thanks again, David. This is probably the most valuable TAG info I've seen !
by the way, do you happen to know if the S/EL Leather with the solid gold bezel was also available in full size... or mid size only ? (sorry for leading one question to the other...)
1. Any Tag Heuer AD should be able to have the watch serviced for you, or maybe you have a watch service center in your area with watchmakers who are authorized to work on your watch as well? If it's only lasting an hour at the most before stopping, hopefully it's just been a while since it's last overhaul. Do you manually wind the movement to get it jumpstarted before you put it on, or just shake it in your hand to get it ticking?This is amazing! I just joined this forum to find out some information on my TAG, my only TAG, which is a very special gift and lo & behold these pictures are MY watch. Thank You. So now I know what I have. What I would like to know is:
1. Where can I get it repaired. It stops running after several minutes to an
hour or so
2. The luminescent material in the markers and the second hand have worn
away or is missing. I hope this can be replaced.
3. What was the manufacturer's suggested retail & what is the current
I hope the included picture come out. Thanks very much!!!
